MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) - Vermont Gov. Peter Shumlin plans an unusual method for making a bill into law this week, and will make two stops to sign the measure aimed at cleaning up Lake Champlain and other state waters.

Shumlin is set on Tuesday to stop at Burlington’s Waterfront Park for what his staff is calling Part 1 of the bill signing. That’s at 3 p.m. Then at 5 p.m., he’s to appear for Part II at St. Albans Bay State Park in St. Albans.

The bill includes about $8 million in state funding and several provisions targeted at reducing the amount of polluted runoff reaching Vermont’s rivers and lakes.

The bill is designed to reduce runoff from farms, roads and other impervious surfaces through a range of incentives, grants and enforcement.
